Japanese food bonanza

Shirokiya is a good Japanese department store but the big attraction is the massive array of food on the second floor. It is hard to describe how many different options are available and all of it made fresh. They have sushi, they have bento boxes, tempura, takoyaki, multiple ramen options and... read more

Stopped here while in ala Moana center. Convenient but crowded and the all of the food options were basically ramen, ramen or ramen. The ramen we had was too oily for my taste.

Little piece of paradise in Ala Moana, 3rd floor near Macy's. Many different outlets, hot cold, takeaway, eat there, drinks, desserts and $1- beer in happy hour. Tasty, fast food but much nicer than the ground floor food court.

Hard to rate because we bought food from different vendors. They had a centralized payout counter with 3 or 4 cashiers. The octupus balls were 3-star, and the teriyaki chicken was very good; my daughter liked it a lot. There was a section where you could buy a variety of ramen; too bad, I was not able to try any...

The food is located on the second floor of the Shirokiya store in the Ala Moana Shopping Center. We tried the white fish, chicken teriyaki and Chicken Karaage pieces... all were good. We also had their Teriyaki Eggplant, a tofu stir fry with veggies and mushrooms plus a stir fried gobo and a seaweed salad from the cafeteria. We also... More

Best place for a snack....and a beer! Was too early for HH (which offers $1 beers), but I needed something cold to drink. Fun place to walk around and look at all the different food offerings. Definitely worth a stop...or two!

The second floor of this department store has a wonderful variety of authentic Japanese foods in the market or eating area as pick-up bento (box lunch) ranging from protein heavy to vegetarian. Or assemble a lunch yourself. Periodically there are fairs showcasing food from a specific area of Japan. Begun in 1662, it is defunct in Japan but thrives in... More

We stopped in here for dessert. The bakery has a great selection, and everything our group tried was really good. The staff was nice. Thanks!

If you want a variety of Japanese food to choose from all boxed up and ready to eat, check out the food court area upstairs at Shirokiya store at Ala Moana Center. Pick from fish, chicken, beef, veggies, meats, noodles, rice, anything you want. Just pick up a bento and try something new.
